(MSNBC) -- President Obama celebrated his 53rd birthday last week. At least, that’s what they want us to think.
The birther website WorldNetDaily is not exactly celebrating President Obama’s birthday [last] week, insisting that since his birth certificate is fake, he probably is lying about how old he is, too.
In his column yesterday, “Obama Turned 53 – Or Did He?,” Jack Cashill writes that Obama is not telling the truth about not only his birth place, but also about the year he was born. The WorldNetDaily reporter cites a 2007 speech Obama delivered in Selma, Alabama, about how his “existence might not have been possible had it not been for some of the folks here today.” Obama was born in 1961, while the Selma to Montgomery march occurred in 1965.

Sure, common sense suggests the president was talking about the civil rights movement in general, not literally the events in Selma four years after he was born, but why give him the benefit of the doubt, right?
